Last month it was pointed out to me that posters on RPGONE’s forums thought the group should retranslate Lufia & the Fortress of Doom, also known as Estpolis Biography, based on the Japanese to English censorship changes I released on GameFAQs.
I’ve always considered the translation very good aside from some forced NOA censorship and a few creative names–which were often better than the Japanese originals. However, since some people think it’s so bad, I threw together a patch to apply my FAQs changes to the game.
This patch changes all the following:
- Character Names: Dios, Erin and Arty are back to normal.
- Monster Names: Gardios and too many others to count.
- Censorship: Bars now sell booze instead of cider. Church is run by a priest instead of a grey-haired shemale. Bunny girls kiss the hero on the second floor of Forfeit Isle. The dress is once again a One-Piece swimsuit. All references to death restored in place of gloom. Shop sells Bunny Ears and Bunny Suits.
- Item Names: Brone to Bronze. Tan to Leather. Carbo to Holy. Might to Ancient. Stuffed Monkey. Rum, Vodka, Gin, Moonshine and Whiskey sold in stores. Lots more.
- Magic Names: All magic names restored to their original, unintelligible syllables. Have fun figuring out what does what. It’s Phantasy Star IV again!
- Dialogue: Corrected the Gades in Sheran reference when Lufia first sees Gades so it is no longer Tarzan-speak.
I did not change Forfeit Island to Pawning Place or Sinistrals into \”Four Mad Gods\” because the English version names sound a million times better. I also did not change Platina and Carbis back to Shaia Labs 1&3 because those would have been too big a hassle.
The patch has been moderately playtested. Please report any bugs that pop up and I’ll fix them. There is a slight chance of some spells making the game lock, but I think I fixed all of these.
Staff Note: As always, you can find the patched mirrored here. The archive includes a standard IPS patch as well as a NINJA format patch for those of you who do not like dealing with the problems caused by patching a headerless or interleaved rom.

Esparks, Double Moon, and a relaunch!
24 April 2006 7:33PM EST - Update by Bongo`
After a brief hiatus, my website is back up and running. I decided announce two projects which have a fair amount of hacking done and only need a translator to get rolling. The first project is Esparks, a great little zelda style adventure game. I’ve got an english font inserted, and have figured out the text compression and coded a working decompressor and recompressor. The other is Double Moon Densetsu, a NES RPG in the style of DragonQuest. I have a few translated script file but I don’t know who translated them and would really like to know who did so that I can get their permission to use them. More details and info can be found on my site.

ROMhacking.net is MOVING to a NEW SERVER!
21 April 2006 1:31PM EST - Update by Nightcrawler
This is some important news that is going to effect everyone. When this site was started, it was unknown if it would take off, so it was put on deadbeat-inc.com to tread the waters. We have since out grown our current subdomain and host and far exceeded our expectations of popularity. It is because of this we are moving to a new Virtual Private Server (VPS/Semi-dedicated), and officially moving to http://www.romhacking.net. How will this affect you? Read on to find out.
This move is going to happen very quickly. It is expected to go down late this Sunday April 23rd. UPDATE YOUR LINKS. Using http://www.romhacking.net will ensure the best service during the transition. When the move is started, the following will happen:
- http://romhacking.deadbeat-inc.com/ will NO LONGER BE THE SITE ADDRESS! However, there will be a ‘we’ve moved page’ up or limited copy of the site.
- The forum access and all submission related pages on the site will go offline at the old address while the database is synced at the new location. (10 minute process)
- Affective immediately after that, the new location site will be turned on, and forum and site activity will resume there.
- http://www.romhacking.net will start pointing to the new location between a few minutes to a few days after the move depending on your geographical location and DNS propagation time. During this time a frozen version of this page will exist at the old location (archives online, but no forum, news, or submissions).
While I have extensivley tested the site and operation at the new server, I do expect we may have some minor growing pains. Anyone experiencing any problems should report it to me on the forum (if possible) or via e-mail (ncrawlerNOFNSPAM@verizon.net).
I’d like to thank SonofMog for being supportive and aggressive in helping to launch this site as well as providing hosting services for the site thus far. I hope to see you all very soon on the new server at http://www.romhacking.net where we will have many new abilities.
